BARRY M GLITTER NAILS

ImageImageImage

I know I’m a little late but I really wanted to get these pictures up as I was really pleased with the way this nail varnish came out… It was Christmas and New Years and in my eyes, it’s illegal not to have those tacky – all out – glittery nails. Because in the words of Love Actually if you can’t say do it at Christmas, when can you eh?

I used Barry M’s 337 Nail Polish, simply called Pink Silver Glitter (£2.99), and I used 2-3 coats to get an opaque coverage. I got loads of compliments and people said they didn’t think they were tacky (but maybe they were just being nice?)

What do you think?

Ignoring the labels and the price tags.. I have pulled together my key looks for this Autumn and Winter.
1) Oversized Boyfriend Coats – Honestly can’t get enough of ’em. Stylish and simple. They aren’t one of those ‘after thought’ coats that you put on and it ruins your outfit – they really make your outfit complete. I think it is worth investing in one of these if you haven’t already because judging by the style and silhouette of the coat, I truly believe it is timeless and not an item you’ll be giving away to charity next year.
2) Winter means Christmas and I use this as an excuse to exploit my nails as much as possible!! I go OTT sparkly and if anyone looks weirdly at them, I just say ‘It’s Christmas….’ and they soon shut up in the fear of being The Grinch. It also means I can comfortably wear dark reds and blacks without being called weird like I am in the summer (I’m really not a fan of pastel nail polish.)
3) FUR AND LEATHER. My two most favourite textures are in their element at Christmas time as they are used everywhere. I have to stress I mean FAUX FUR .. I am so against wearing fur it makes me sad thinking about it .. I have plenty of leather and fur items this winter and they couldn’t be missed in my favourites.
4) The classic black boot. Every year I get a different one, and to be honest, they’re never really that different year to year. But I do love a good stylish black boot that you can put on with almost anything. I practically live in mine, I genuinely can’t remember the last time I wore a shoe that wasn’t a black boot…
They were my Autumn/ Winter favourites or ‘key looks.’
I want to know what you’ve been loving this winter!?

MUA

After my Nails Inc disaster I was reluctant to try another nail varnish because I thought I was just going to get even more pissed off. But I had seen a couple of good reviews about this particular nail polish, so I thought I’d give it a try and oh my god….

Amazing. Just amazing. Everything I could ask for in a nail polish, it passes all my tests. It’s called Make Up Academy (MUA) and it’s from Superdrug.

1)      After two coats it is completely opaque

2)      It dries super fast

3)      It dries without getting those annoying imprints on the top of the nail

4)      And most importantly, it passes the 2-3 day chip.

I applied this nail polish on Thursday afternoon, and by Sunday I still have absolutely no chips.

But if that wasn’t enough, let me just let you know how much this amazing nail polish cost… £1!! Yes… ONE POUND.

I’m really surprised as to how long this lasted and how professional looking it stayed for days so I would 100% recommend this! It was so hard to photograph the nails and get the true colour. Although the colour is called.. I see it as a baby pink with a lilac undertone, but definitely more pink than lilac despite what these photos look like.

What’s a cheap beauty product that you’ve been surprised about!?
